Data Structuring & Visualization System for Neuro-oncology

Data Structuring & Visualization System for Neuro-oncology

An appropriate review of a patient's medical record often requires that a physician review multiple clinical documents while mentally noting issues related to the case. Physicians must review what the findings were, the chronology of events, spatial/temporal patterns of disease progression, and the effects of interventions. Among all this data, the physician must filter out information irrelevant to the current clinical context of care. The growing complexity of the medical record makes it increasingly difficult for physicians to perform a comprehensive review of the patient chart, which may compromise patient care in several ways. This proposal addresses the development of a system for facilitating the review of neuro-oncology patient data intended to promote an orderly process of medical problem understanding and care.
